A most appealing family home with wonderful views across well-established gardens and grounds of about 2.75 acres.
The current vendors of Crondall House have recently completed a comprehensive and sympathetic programme of works including a large extension. The original house was constructed by Herbert Pool in the 1930s.
The hub of the property is very much centred around the stunning kitchen, breakfast and family room which combines modern living in a bright and airy space with spectacular views and access to the extensive paved sitting area and gardens beyond. There are double doors through to the dining room for more formal occasions, with the remaining ground-floor reception space being completed by a study and drawing room which has a wood burner set in an attractive brick fireplace. Beyond the kitchen is a lobby/larder, useful boot room with external door, second cloakroom and utility.
There is also internal access to the workshop and the garaging.
On the first floor the main bedroom suite has a large dressing room (possible fifth bedroom) and generous en-suite shower room. The impressive guest bedroom has a private shower room and store room off which could easily be a dressing room. There are two further double bedrooms and a family bathroom. It should be noted all principal rooms have the benefit of beautiful views across the gardens.
This property has 2.75 acres of land.
Through electric gates a sweeping gravelled drive brings you to the front entrance where there is a central garden island and access to the garaging. There is also a secondary drive back to Crondall Road which also has electric gates. The house is well positioned within its plot with extensive areas of lawn which are interspersed with a variety of trees. The paved terrace can be accessed from the family room, dining room and drawing room. Well screened behind a brick wall is the vegetable area where there is a greenhouse, raised beds and various timber sheds. On the western side of the house is a timber building which is currently used as a gym.
Crookham Village, between Odiham and Fleet, has a rich local history and enjoys rural surroundings yet with convenient access to local road and rail links. The village has a public house and popular bar/restaurant.
The Basingstoke Canal flows through Crookham Village and crosses the River Hart on a high embankment. Coal and timber were once shipped at Crookham Wharf. More comprehensive shopping facilities can be found in nearby Fleet where there is a Sainsburys and Waitrose. There are a number of good schools within the local area including two Infant Schools and a Junior School. Many of the Independent Schools are in easy reach, most with local pick-up points and include St Nicholas, St Neots, Daneshill and Lord Wandsworth College.
The area is well served for the commuter with main line stations at Fleet, Hook, Winchfield and Basingstoke all providing a scheduled service to London Waterloo; also the M3 at Junctions 4a and 5 within easy driving distance.
